The EIRG is a federally-funded research lab focused on supporting the development of toddlers. We are looking for families of young children with hearing loss, language delays, or autism to participate in research. Families may receive compensation for their time, developmental reports about their child, and possibly in-home therapy. http://ei.northwestern.edu/research#ongoing-projects
